Teaser Tuesday: Incidents in the Rue Laugier

"Maud simply wanted to live in Paris, with or without a husband, preferably without. While careful not to let her thoughts show on her severe and slightly disdainful golden face, Maud had a secret desire to escape all forms of control." -- Incidents in the Rue Laugier by Anita Brookner I am now definitely a Brookner fan. Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.


  1. Oooooh...Good Teaser! I want to read it!

    "A few people were interrupted mid-errand to stare. All eyes were on the elderly woman limping and quacking."
    The Cruelest Month by Louise Penny, p. 167


  2. Oops! My Teaser Tuesday post popped up on Monday. I can only blame user error.

    It is now going to disappear until tomorrow.

    Michelle -- thanks for the note and your teaser! Your comment will come back tomorrow too.

  3. Great teaser! Maud sounds like such a typical Brookner type, with her "slightly disdainful" face. Love her books.
